    Hello,
    The firefox shortcut for previous/next is Cmd+[ and Cmd+]

    On a German keyboard of the late 08 MB, to type the "]" or the "[" sign, I have to press Option+Command+5 or Option+Command+6

    ( What is btw very strange that the sign is not even visible on the keyboard and I had to look for it )

    The problem is that if I hit this key combination in Firefox, it doesn't trigger the previous/next action. The "History" menu is highlighted for a short moment as if the combination was correctly type but the navigation doesn't move.

    Any ideas how to do that ?

    Thanks,
    Tex

    I always use Command + left/right cursor keys, or this is Alt + left/right in Windows. This is the "original" forward/back shortcut, since the days of XMosaic, which became Netscape. It works in IE, Firefox, Safari, Opera and Chrome, and possibly other browsers.

    well I tried the cmd+left/right and it works but there is one problem: if there is an input field which has the focus on the page, this doesn't work :(
